PW stated that the collection "transcends the purposeful absence of continuity and plot. " Copyright 1987 Reed. From Library Journal Beattie's stories are all "middle, " without beginnings or ends: she gives us glimpses of her characters as they gain insight through a random event or are "surprised into remembering" something. A moment of acceptance is crystallized in "In the White Night, " about a couple whose child has died. In "Summer People, " a chance encounter with a stranger leads a man to understand that he isn't connecting with his wife. Marriage and infidelity are recurring themes. In "Times, " a woman recalls her husband's confession of an affair. A realtor in "Janus" places a beautiful bowl, a gift from her departed lover, in each house she shows. Skillful and affecting contemporary stories, 12 of which have appeared in magazines, and three published here for the first time. Janet Wiehe, P. L. Of Cincinnati & Hamilton Cty. Copyright 1986 Reed.
